EuroGamer Expo 2013
So it was that time of year again when Eurogamer Expo hit London's Earls Court and I must say it was very interesting to say the least. Obvioulsy, I couldn't get in the queues for PS4 or XB1 testing but did manage to see a couple of games on show on the machines and they looked pretty cool. We got there about 9.45am and press was this time directed to an underground passage underneath the venue. Very strange. However, we got a look at some of the up coming games and I tried a couple of games out to see what they were like, and Dark Souls 2 won hands down for me. We had to queue for that but not for long and it was a worthy trying to defeat the Mirror Knight. The gameplay is more polished and it looks stunning. Next March Prepare to Die, all over again.
Above you can see me trying out the re-masters of Final Fantasy X which I am particularly looking forward to on release as these classics look absolutely stunning on PS3 and in HD from their PS2 counterparts.
The bottom floor was laid differently this year and it was not easy to find a meeting point if you meandered from people...Upstairs had the over the 18s games this year but all I got to play was a fun version of Ninja Gaiden called Ninja Gaiben Z which was cell shaded Ninja zombie slasher and it worked extremely well...not to be taken seriously and a lot of fun.
Also on show was the totally brilliant Shadow Warrior remake by Fly Wild Hog and as an owner of that game I had to take a photo to show it off to you all. We may go back tomorrow, it all depends, it was not as exciting as last year but then again it was our 2nd EG Expo. See you there next year! BTW, my son got a good shot of a painting of Corvo from Dishonoured which I we add last. It's a great photo.
